HTML page break convert to PDF

Hey everyone,

 

Wondering if you could help me please, I have a flow that converts HTML text to PDF and then saves the PDF file to OneDrive.

The html text is sent from PowerApps to flow, this is used for a company delivery ticket, the ticket and design all works correctly. The issue I am having is when multiple tickets are passed from PowerApps, the new ticket is not generating on to a new page, what I am trying to achieve is basically ticket 1 on page 1, ticket 2 on page 2 etc.

I have used the page-break-before and page-break-after in my html, I have also tried break-after, these work correctly in my html document but this does not work when the flow converts to PDF, the page breaks are removed.


I can use <br> on the end of my html to pad out the spacing at the end of the ticket, however this doesn't always work as depending on the data passed to the delivery ticket the height can change.

Does anyone have any experience in getting the page breaks to work when converting to PDF or any work around I can use instead? 

 

I have copied in the html below for reference.

Thanks in advance!


Deri


concat('<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<style>
table, th, td {
border: 0.5px solid black;}
.newPageTop {
page-break-before:always;
}
.newPageBottom {
page-break-after:always;
}
p {break-before: always;
}

</style>
</head>
<body><p></p><h3 style= "text-align: center; color:#000080; font-family:tahoma; font-size: 12px;"> <img src="', variables('logoHeader'),'" style="width:350px; height:60px;"> <br> T:  <br> E:

Hi @Deriooo 

I assume you're using the OneDrive approach to HTML conversion? There lots of CSS / JS and general HTML mark-up which isn't supported.

I ran your HTML through the Encodian 'HTML to PDF' action and the page break worked fine. However, there are some issues with the HTML with unclosed tags (table) and a few other bits, I think you've optimized the CSS for OneDrive conversion, the Encodian action will render as per the HTML rendered within a browser.

HI @Deriooo 

 

I don't have much experience in this, but I did some digging and found the following articles:

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Building-Power-Apps/html-page-breaks-does-not-work-using-MS-Flow...

 

Also, I found this:

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/6235038/pagebreak-in-converting-html-to-doc-and-docx-fromat-php

(Try inserting the style directly in the <br>)

 

Hope this helps you

Hi Manuel,

 

Thanks for your reply and suggestions, apologies for the late reply. 

 

I have tried the suggestions you sent over, unfortunately still not working as expected, so I'm assuming Flow can't support this function at the moment. Thanks for your help on this anyway!

 

Thanks,

 

Deri 

Hi Deri,

Can you please share the complete HTML your sending to conversion? we can't validate the HTML with the contained variables.

Thanks J

Still no way to solved this issue?

 

I need to insert a page break in the html string...haven't found a way to do it...

 

@cholopa This issue was never resolved because the HTML wasn't provided by @Deriooo 

Can you provide some details so we can review?

You would typically included page breaks via a css class:

<div id="pgX" class="page">

.page { page-break-before: always; }

Thanks for your quick reply:

 

Your code seems not to work inside html string (don't know if i have to do something else apart for adding your code):

@cholopa 

You can't just add that data to existing HTML mark-up and expect it to work, you need to ensure the HTML is correctly formatted relevant to your HTML mark-up, for example:

 

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
	<head>
		<meta charset="UTF-8">
		<style>
			.page			{ page-break-before: always;}	
		</style>
	</head>
	<body>
		<div>
			<p>Page 1</p>
		</div>
		<div class="page">
			<p>Page 2</p>
		</div>
		<div class="page">
			<p>Page 3</p>
		</div>
	</body>
</html>

Hi @Jay-Encodian 
Apologies in the delay for coming back with the HTML, I couldn't find a solution for this problem so this aspect of the project has been left for some time.

I've copied in the full HTML that is used for conversion, I've had to remove some of the business details and sensitive data but the HTML structure is the same, I've reduced the size of the img src base 64 links also, if you need the full base64 link included then please let me know and I can reinsert this to send over to you.

Whatever way I try the page breaks, whether using before or after with the css style, when the HTML document is converted to PDF the page breaks are not inserted, and the next <div> element is started half way through a page. With the example I've sent above, this HTML is used to create two company tickets for two separate customers, hence why I need these tickets to be created on a new page each time. 

Hi @Deriooo 

I assume you're using the OneDrive approach to HTML conversion? There lots of CSS / JS and general HTML mark-up which isn't supported.

I ran your HTML through the Encodian 'HTML to PDF' action and the page break worked fine. However, there are some issues with the HTML with unclosed tags (table) and a few other bits, I think you've optimized the CSS for OneDrive conversion, the Encodian action will render as per the HTML rendered within a browser.

HTH

Hi @Jay-Encodian 


Yes we are using the built in OneDrive solution for conversion, I thought after some time trying different things that it may be the case OneDrive doesn't support this, we've come across issues before with PDF conversion in OneDrive.

 

Thanks for the help on this and pointing out some issues with the HTML. 

 

I think our only option will be to look at your Encodian package going forward, it seems to handle the PDF conversion a lot smoother. 

 

Thanks 

Deri

Hi @Deriooo 

It's unfortunate, it may improve in future and vendors such as Encodian will focus on plugging other gaps in PA capability.

If you need any help with the HTML let me know

A workaround exists to generate a PDF with more than one pages by using CSS and the OneDrive connector: https://www.inspiribytes.com/power-automate/generate-multiple-pages-pdf-in-power-automate/

Encapsulate each page with DIVs.  Example:

<div id="page1" style = "height:770px; width: 535px">

Page 1

</div>

<div id="page2" style = "height:770px; width: 535px">

Page 2

 

This is how I solve the page break issue.  Hope this helps.

Tuesday Tip: Subscriptions & Notifications

TUESDAY TIPS are our way of communicating helpful things we've learned or shared that have helped members of the Community. Whether you're just getting started or you're a seasoned pro, Tuesday Tips will help you know where to go, what to look for, and navigate your way through the ever-growing--and ever-changing--world of the Power Platform Community! We cover basics about the Community, provide a few "insider tips" to make your experience even better, and share best practices gleaned from our most active community members and Super Users.   With so many new Community members joining us each week, we'll also review a few of our "best practices" so you know just "how" the Community works, so make sure to watch the News & Announcements each week for the latest and greatest Tuesday Tips!   This Week: All About Subscriptions & Notifications We don't want you to a miss a thing in the Community! The best way to make sure you know what's going on in the News & Announcements, to blogs you follow, or forums and galleries you're interested in is to subscribe! These subscriptions ensure you receive automated messages about the most recent posts and replies. Even better, there are multiple ways you can subscribe to content and boards in the community! (Please note: if you have created an AAD (Azure Active Directory) account you won't be able to receive e-mail notifications.)   Subscribing to a Category  When you're looking at the entire category, select from the Options drop down and choose Subscribe.     You can then choose to Subscribe to all of the boards or select only the boards you want to receive notifications. When you're satisfied with your choices, click Save.     Subscribing to a Topic You can also subscribe to a single topic by clicking Subscribe from the Options drop down menu, while you are viewing the topic or in the General board overview, respectively.     Subscribing to a Label Find the labels at the bottom left of a post.From a particular post with a label, click on the label to filter by that label. This opens a window containing a list of posts with the label you have selected. Click Subscribe.     Note: You can only subscribe to a label at the board level. If you subscribe to a label named 'Copilot' at board #1, it will not automatically subscribe you to an identically named label at board #2. You will have to subscribe twice, once at each board.   Bookmarks Just like you can subscribe to topics and categories, you can also bookmark topics and boards from the same menus! Simply go to the Topic Options drop down menu to bookmark a topic or the Options drop down to bookmark a board. The difference between subscribing and bookmarking is that subscriptions provide you with notifications, whereas bookmarks provide you a static way of easily accessing your favorite boards from the My subscriptions area.   Managing & Viewing Your Subscriptions & Bookmarks To manage your subscriptions, click on your avatar and select My subscriptions from the drop-down menu.     From the Subscriptions & Notifications tab, you can manage your subscriptions, including your e-mail subscription options, your bookmarks, your notification settings, and your email notification format.     You can see a list of all your subscriptions and bookmarks and choose which ones to delete, either individually or in bulk, by checking multiple boxes.     A Note on Following Friends on Mobile Adding someone as a friend or selecting Follow in the mobile view does not allow you to subscribe to their activity feed. You will merely be able to see your friends’ biography, other personal information, or online status, and send messages more quickly by choosing who to send the message to from a list, as opposed to having to search by username.
